The MeT Initiative was formed in April, 2000, with the purpose of
jointly developing an open and common industry framework for secure
mobile electronic transactions. The initiative uses existing and
emerging standards to create a common framework that will facilitate
the fast adoption of trusted mobile commerce services globally.

The MeT technologies and concepts will work on all networks, with all
services, and on all mobile devices. They will draw on existing
industry standards such as WAP, Wireless Transport Layer Security
(WTLS), Wireless Identification Module (WIM), Public Key
Infrastructure (PKI) and Bluetooth. Privacy and security will be
ensured with digital signatures and cryptography services for
transaction verification, confidentiality, authentication, and
non-repudiation. Examples of MeT based applications include secure
access and use of personal credit cards, debit cards, loyalty
schemes, and ticketing.
